Out among the stars, a young man will become a legend
Roland Horn's promotion to Lieutenant Commander is still warm when he's handed his most difficult assignment yet. Stand up a second special forces squadron, and lead them with the rest of Task Force Cobalt in an attack on the last Union outpost in the asteroid belt.
With exiled aces from foreign lands buffering his ranks, Roland has his work cut out for him. He'll need to reach across cultural divides and overcome his own imposter syndrome to not only lead them to victory, but also become an ace of aces.
But dark forces are gathering against them. With Union ace Rocco Swift out of commission for the foreseeable future, Valentin Fulbright urges for more drastic measures be taken to fend off the Tharcians. Out in the belt, a battle will rage one that will echo forever in eternity.
